All to play for in the last game of the season...

Ladies' 1s 0 - 1 Olton & West Warwicks Ladies 1s

Oxford Hawks travelled to Olton three points ahead of Cannock who were occupying the relegation play off place. Hawks knew that they had to equal or better Cannocks result so were fully fired up going into their last league game of the season. Hawks played some outstanding hockey right from the first whistle, with defender Caro Harris on fine form throughout.

Chances came and went at both ends but it was Olton who broke the deadlock midway through the second half when Olympic bronze medallist Sally Walton finished well. Moments later Hawks lost Abi Flory with a suspected broken thumb, but despite this setback they continued to push forwards and won a number of penalty corners. However Olton defended well and Hawks could not make the breakthrough they needed.

The final whistle blew but news came through that Cannock had lost 5-0 so celebrations ensued, as Hawks knew they successfully avoided the relegation play offs. An early 50th birthday present for the Chairman who now has two teams in the National League next year for the first time in the club’s history!
